Welcome to Western

Transfer Credit Eligibility for Canadian University Transfer Applicants

All Canadian University Transfer applicants who have met the admission requirements will have their applications considered for transfer credit. Transfer credit may be granted for all courses completed at another accredited university within Canada with a minimum final mark of 60% (C -), provided that these courses, even though not offered and/or taken at Western, are recognized as reaching acceptable university standards and may be appropriately included in the program of studies at Western University.


7-member University Credit Transfer Consortium

Western University has joined with the following six Ontario universities to make it easier for students to get credit for courses already completed. Students who have completed any first-year arts, social science and science degree course at McMaster University, Queen's University, University of Guelph, University of Ottawa, University of Waterloo, or University of Toronto, with a minimum grade of 60%, are assured of general, first-year credit upon admission to Western University.

Among the 7-member University Credit Transfer Consortium, we will grant specific course credit for 20 of the most highly subscribed first year foundational courses. Consortium members are committed to ensuring that all courses within our degrees meet standards of high quality and that our foundational courses adequately prepare for more focused learning in higher years. Completing any of these foundational courses at any Consortium member university will satisfy the program prerequisite requirement that the corresponding Western course would satisfy, subject to meeting grade requirements.
